Fragrant Detour in Provence: International Perfume Museum

The International Perfume Museum in Grasse, France is the only museum of its kind in the world. Its location in Grasse is a symbolic gesture to the city’s importance as the birthplace of luxury perfumes. The museum allows visitors to explore the layered history of fragrances across civilisations from antiquity to the present day. Artefacts such as ancient perfume bottles are on display, evidencing the importance of the self-care ritual of fragrance dating back four thousand years. The Perfume Museum ties together all aspects of perfume design from the technicalities of manufacture to the social and cultural atmospheres that have begotten the world’s great perfumes. Guests staying at Château Saint-Martin & Spa and Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc are highly encouraged to devote an afternoon to beautiful Grasse and the International Perfume Museum.
